The 2016 Ford Escape has already set the standard for the modern compact crossover, leaving Chicago and Manteno drivers little reason to consider other competitors. A refreshed infotainment system joins a stunning list of standard and available features – plus a diverse range of powertrains – to create one of the most advanced SUVs on the road today.
This year’s Ford Escape has removed the MyFord Touch system in favor of an advanced SYNC3 alternative. Boasting a new touchscreen, ultrafast responsiveness, and an ergonomic layout, this is the perfect tool for managing audio, phone, and navigational features, while enhanced voice recognition allows for effortless control while driving.
The 2016 Ford Escape is available in three trims, allowing Chicago and Manteno drivers to find exactly what they’re after.
True to Ford’s devotion to driver choice, the 2016 Ford Escape is available with three different engines.
Each engine is paired with a 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission system, which allows for smooth gear shifting without the hassle of a clutch.
The 2016 Ford Escape provides 98.1 cubic feet of passenger space for a total of 5 people, making it noticeably roomy and comfortable with plenty of room for cargo. Even with all seats occupied, you’ll have 15.5 cubic feet of cargo space to play with. If you require more, just flip the third row down for 34.3 cubic feet or fold the second and third for an expansive 67.8 cubic feet for storage.
The interior is even eco-conscious, as well as generously sized. Over 10 pounds of recovered cotton has been used for sound-absorption, creating a whisper-quiet drive with environmentally friendly credentials.
Even the standard model 2016 Ford Escapes boast plenty of premium technology for Chicago and Manteno drivers to enjoy, including a rearview camera for confident reversing and a SYNC system to control your music and connect to your smartphone. However, a number of available features can be equipped, allowing drivers to perfectly customize their vehicle.
As standard, the 2016 Ford Escape includes a wide array of safety features to keep you and your passengers from coming to harm, such as an AdvanceTrac system with roll stability control, brake assist, and torque vectoring control.
There are also a number of driver-assistance technologies, which are perfectly designed for those who demand an additional layer of protection. The BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) uses radar to identify vehicles in your blind spot and provides an alert in the appropriate exterior mirror, while the cross-traffic alert system monitors the road behind you for incoming vehicles whenever you’re reversing.
